Liesel often dreams of her brother Werner; she dreams he's coughing. In Part Six, the dream changes. She can't see her brother's face, so she moves closer. Surprise! It isn't Werner in her dream at all; it's Max. Liesel runs to Max because he's been sick. She begs him to wake up, but he doesn't. The dream signifies Liesel's fear of death. Max wakes up eight days later.
